Door and Kewaunee counties dip into low COVID community level

After a week in the medium COVID-19 community level, data from the Centers for Disease Control shows Door and Kewaunee counties back in the green. A big reason why is that Door County snapped a streak of weeks where there was at least one hospitalization and/or death  Neither was reported by the Door County Public Health Department this week to go along with the 29 positives of COVID-19 out of 94 tests administered. Kewaunee County only had 18 positive tests with no new deaths or hospitalizations. Overall, no Wisconsin counties are in the high level, and just 25 of the state’s 72 counties are in the medium level. Despite the good news, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that COVID-19, combined with the flu and RSV and staffing shortages, are stretching the limits of area hospitals.
